Schools have been slowly rolling out first days around here for the last few weeks. Last week was the first week of classes for my college roommate and I know a lot of other schools start in the next few weeks.
It's kind of funny to not have any relation to school. I'm not gong to school and no one else in my family is, so August really just marks the hottest month of the year for me! :-)
But, I love all of the school scrapbook papers in the stores. I picked up a cute one and used it on this card.
I used the My Favorite Things sketch for this card and think it's perfect for featuring the back-to-school paper.
Here's a close up of the patterned paper:
If you are counting down to, or getting in the swing of, the new school year... good luck and remember SCHOOL ROCKS!
Hey guys! I'm BACK! I think I just needed some time away to just... breath. The whole car-buying thing I think took me for more of a spin (no pun intended) than I was expecting. I just needed things to settle back down into my routine, basic, vanilla life. Now that the car experience has truly sunk in I can get back to normal life. ... And normal life includes lots of crafting!
I have definitely stepped away from big projects to share mainly because my apartment is in a state of *near perfection, so I'm more crafty than anything. Of course, it's no secret that I rely on my Silhouette to create my crafts and I've been lucky enough to join a Facebook group of Silhouette users! The group is made up of bloggers and non-bloggers alike and if you would like to join, request to here.
One of my favorite things about the virtual Silhouette group is that they "host" quarterly swaps. Earlier this year it was a card swap and currently we are in the midst of a "tag" swap. I am just wrapping up my final ten tags and will have them in the mail this weekend. Then in a few weeks, I will get a package with 30 handmade tags from Silhouette-crafters from around the country!
Before I settled on my design, I was scouring Pinterest and Google looking for inspiration. I thought it would be fun to share some favorite tags I discovered during my search!
